Sea Urchin Ring

Artist Statement: Living in Turkey has some big advantages, like the beautiful abandoned beaches with just you, the sea and the blue sky. During our long beach walks, we often find all kind of treasures as sea urchins and shells.

This ring is one of the treasures born of our findings. We clean the sea urchins, fill them with polyurethane foam and cover them with epoxy to make them strong and shiny. We used multicolored thread to adorn the sea urchin and a glass rhinestone in the centre to finish the piece.
